Justin Bieber’s Pro-Life Stance in Rolling Stone Isn’t Entirely His Fault
Justin Bieber has caused a shitstorm this week for his controversial opinions on abortion, which appear in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Bieber said, “”I really don’t believe in abortion. I think [an embryo] is a human. It’s like killing a baby.” The teen tart even condemns abortions in special cases of rape, although he will concede that rape is “really sad.”
Ha. Ha. Ha. It’s funny when Christian teen superstars say things, isn’t it? And by funny, I mean very very scary. Having read these quotes online, I decided to buy the issue and read the whole profile to find out the complete truth. Perhaps the quotes were somehow taken out of context, or the article would reveal Bieber to be a poor misguided soul. Thankfully, the latter turned out to be pretty true. Justin Bieber may be ignorant, but he’s also very impressionable. Before we delve into why he may have said such idiotic things though, let’s take a moment to analyze his two convenient opinions regarding gay people and love.
Bieber on Gays: “It’s everyone’s own decision to [be gay]. (Author’s note: It’s not a decision, but thanks babe! Force-fed tolerance is a cute look for you!) It doesn’t affect me and shouldn’t affect anyone else.”
How nice of Bieber to think kindly of gay people, especially since they constitute 30% of his fan base, and he’s also been known to resemble a lesbian. Whaddaguy!
His ideas on sex are also very illuminating. Since Bieber is essentially a pro-life Evangelical Christian nightmare, one might think he would believe in abstinence. Well, he does! Sort of. I mean maybe. I mean what was the question?
Bieber on Love: “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them…I think you should just wait for the person you’re … in love with.”
Considering Bieber is a horny teenager, I’m sure he falls in love all the time with electronics, music, and girls. I wonder how many girls he’s fallen in love with before. If we get that number, then we’ll surely know how many girls he has slept with.
Admittedly, I’m being a little too critical. If I learned anything from reading the Rolling Stone article, it’s that Justin Bieber’s mother— ex-druggie and current born-again Christian Pattie Lynn Malllette—is largely responsible for her son’s questionable belief system. She claims Justin was a gift from God and that before her pregnancy, she was considering suicide. Once she learned she was with child, she believed it to be a sign from the heavens that she get her life together (by becoming a bigoted religious zealot intent on judging the lives of others. LOL.) and so she did just that.
When Scott Braun—the man who would eventually become Bieber’s manager—displayed interest in repping her son, Mallette originally spurned his advances because he was Jewish and she felt her son needed a Christian manager. However, after meeting Braun’s father at a T.G.I. Friday’s in an airport, Malllette was convinced that Braun was a good guy who came from a strong family, and accepted his representation. Umm…
Mallette says some wacky shit in the Rolling Stone piece, which make it worth the purchase alone. It also makes you realize that Bieber is still an uninformed child. When you’re a 16-year-old, your beliefs are still very much a reflection of your parents because you haven’t experienced or lived enough to have formed your own. When you criticize Bieber for saying these stupid things about abortion, you should really pinpoint the blame on his psycho Evangelical mother. He’s clearly been spoon-fed this crap since he was little. We can only hope he grows out of it soon and forms his own ideas, one of which being that pro-life people are creepy.

Try something today. Count how many times someone brings up some sort of mental illness in normal conversation. Add that number up and tell me it doesn’t strike you as kind of weird how many normal people walk around with the belief that there is something wrong with them.

You may lose what would have been the joy of the experience had you not been so focused on some fabricated idea or unrealistic expectation you had of how it was going to turn out.
